I purchased this book myself.
Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back?
*This review was originally written in 2013 but was never posted.
This is one of those series that I really wish that I had read before I watched the television show. The reason I say this is because the show and the actresses have spoiled me. I envision the actresses from the show when I read the book and find myself slightly disappointed when they act differently.
I still really enjoy the book and the in-depth story. We get to learn a little more about Alison, I think, and I've heard that the television series goes really differently compared to the books. Based on that, I'm very curious about what happens in the future books. I can't wait to read further into the series and see where they lead.
Also, am I the only one that's crazy over the covers?
